Career advice and career support
If you are a young, unemployed person in need of career support, age 16-24 and living in the UK, our mentoring programme can help you. It’s completely free of charge and the great thing is we match your career aspirations to the mentors field of expertise so you will learn from a corporate executive working in the industry you wish to get into. Your mentor will share their inside knowledge of the role and industry and discuss available career paths to you.
They will also review and help you improve your CV, and prepare you for interview. Mentoring can take place online or face-to-face depending on what you and your mentor prefer, making it easy to take part.
We provide free career advice, supporting young people through our career mentoring programme. Youth unemployment is now one of the most serious challenges facing Britain. Over 900,000 16-24 year olds are unemployed, with little access to career support and training.
